RCTR Centers' Community Based Education Training Conferences.
Schwartz, Henrietta; And Others
To strengthen community involvement through leadership development, the Teacher Corps' four regional Recruitment and Community Technical Resource (RCTR) Centers in 1979 each presented a "Community Based Education Training Conference" for their local project staffs and community council leaders and members. This report summarizes conference planning, structure, and results in order to share findings and information with Corps project participants and to help them design local training sessions. The first of five chapters gives an overview of conference design and documentation and of the RCTR Centers' technical assistance roles. Chapter 2 describes the national and regional planning process that generated the sessions common to all four conferences as well as those unique to each conference. Both the common and unique sessions are examined in detail in chapter 3, along with data on conference participants. Chapter 4 analyzes eight aspects of each conference's "culture" and the shared beliefs and behaviors that were developed as a result. Chapter 5 assesses both successful and unsuccessful aspects of the conferences and suggests improvements. (Author/RW)
